MoT Data for Guildford

MoT data for Guildford shows a slightly above average overall pass rate. Most of the key failure areas are slightly less problematic in GU postcodes than they are elsewhere, but most of the rest of the figures are very close to the national standard, including tests by year of registration and tests by make.

It's worth noting that older cars tend to perform worse than the national average and newer cars tend to perform slightly better, althoguh the amount of deviation isn't huge.
